This marks the 10th anniversary of my leaving DC. 10 years ago I moved from the DC area to Nashville, TN to start grad school. Except I didn't make the trek alone.
So Dell contacted us a few weeks back and told us they would love to remote into our MD3000i Storage Array (hereby referring to as the "SAN") and update its firmware.
Sure, we told Dell. Love to have ya!

For the first time in many, many years, my wife and I are taking a road trip right now. The kids are staying with grandparents for a week and a half, and we decided we wanted to take this time to enjoy one another and take a vacation. We swung through Las Vegas to Bakersfield, and now Santa Cruz. We had a few objectives on this trip: spend as much time together without our kids as we could, and make a memorable trip as cheaply as possible.
Slashdot is running a story today about how three geeks attending a Lego convention used the "Find my iPhone" app to recover a stolen iPhone:

I ran across John Hummel's latest [url=http://blogthereligions.com/node/132]Blog The Religions[/url] post, and I have one thing to say.
My name's Matt Barnson, and I endorse this message. Heck, I even really like his blog theme and the software driving it :)
Haven't blogged in awhile, but I thought that mentioning this on Facebook was too public.
What the hell happened to common courtesy? Twice today I am chagrined by the lack of courtesy shown to me by folks.
This coming week, I and my family will be hiking various national and state parks in and around St. George, UT. Late May is a little bit warm for the activity -- high 80s, low 90s -- but I think it will be fun nonetheless.
For would-be robbers, of course my mother will still be keeping guard at the house :)
